Overview

Paradise Lost...

(The 5th book in the Kate Jones Thriller Series) Kate Jones and her lover, Cole are on a luxury cruise in the Caribbean when a passenger dies of an apparent heart attack and the ship is boarded by modern-day pirates. Along with two other passengers, Kate is kidnapped by a long-lost enemy who wants to settle an old score.

Kate's vacation turns into non-stop action when Anaya's gunmen board the cruise ship and she finds herself on a jet ski surrounded by sharks, kidnapped, held captive, staked down over patch of fast growing bamboo, and drugged in a Voodoo ceremony. Add a 16th century Spanish shipwreck, hidden treasure, and an Obeah priestess and you've got trouble in paradise.

Will Kate escape certain death or end up as shark bait in the middle of the Caribbean?
It's adventure in paradise and promises all the fast-paced action readers have come to expect from the Kate Jones Thriller Series.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com - A. Mosa
...The story is filled with twists and turns as the reader is kept guessing as to who to trust. Berkom delivers an action packed story with Kate's life at stake, Cole searching for her, and the clock ticking.
Amazon.com - Jennifer Conner
This is book 5 in the Kate Jones action series, and Kate's found herself in more hot water on the high seas. With her boyfriend, Cole, along, the two decide to take a romantic cruise. That is until the end of the first page, then there is a dead body!

Kate has a shady past with Mexican drug lords. If she has any luck... not... she's in something more than deep water!

Action on every page. Love DV's writing and the Kate series.

DV Berkom is no stranger to reading and writing fast-paced, exciting stories. The author of two bestselling thriller series featuring strong female protagonists, Berkom grew up on a steady diet of spy novels, James Bond movies and mysteries. Her natural inclination is to keep the reader on the edge of their seat and guessing until the last page.

Raised in the Midwest region of the US, she received her BA in Political Science from the University of Minnesota and promptly moved to Mexico to live on a sailboat. Several years and at least a dozen moves later, she now lives outside of Seattle, Washington with her sweetheart Mark, an ex-chef-turned-contractor, and writes whenever she gets a chance.

    Highly Recommend

    This series is not fantasy or science fiction as one reviewer posted. It's a very fast paced, suspenseful series about Kate Jones who finds herself in all kinds of trouble after trying to leave her boyfriend who is the leader of a mexican drug cartel.
    You won't regret buying this novel but be sure to start with the first in the series which is Bad Spirits and it's free to start you off. JudyE

    All of the Kate Jones Thriller books were amazing. It has been a very long time since I have read a book or in this case, books, that I did not want to put down. I have only 1 book left written by DV Berkom and I will be ordering it after this review. Great Writing, Easy Read, Fun! Thanks for the creativity.

    I have read all of the books by this author. They are very good and keep you interested with all of the twists and turns. Initially, the books are all novelas but they were worth the money.
